Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer
The printer is about 7 months old. It has been working fine until last week. I have installed new color and black ink (infact I installed the black ink 3 times last week all were new)
The printer will respond when I tell it to print from my pc a document but there is no print on the paper. If I tell it to print a color picture then it will print but is distorted in color etc.
I have gone in and did a calabration and cleaned the printhead several times but it still will not print any document and the color pictures are still distorted. The paper will run thru and it sounds like it is printing but there is no print. Of course the same thing happens when I try to copy
You need to clean the printhead of the printer to solve that
issue. Because everytime you print, excessive inks are going
to the printhead that's the reason why it's clogging the
system up. That's because Kodak printers is using
"pigments" as inks that's why Kodak printers are producing
high quality prints unlike other printers - a photo printed from
kodak could actually last for about 100 years. Now back to
your issue, you need to clean the printhead from the printer
but not manually. You could clean it by going to the
software of the printer namely the KODAK HOME
CENTER SOFTWARE. You need to click the "?" mark
icon on the upper right corner of the software window then
under the General Links select Maintenance then choose
Clean Printhead. Do it at least twice and then try making
prints. If that still doesn't work try calling Kodak Technical

I hope I have been some of help. ^_^
